Planned Homesteading Communities based on sustainable,
earth friendly and self-sufficient practices (meaning they are able
to produce or provide more of the needs of the community using local
resources) would provide rewarding livelihood and economic security.
This is the new way to create ‘jobs’ on the local level
as we move toward a resource based economy.
Friendly, Affordable Upbeat – We the People CAN do this.
Homesteading is a community sport. We need a village, a community
to play the GAME. Together we can move from the devastation and
waste of the paradigm of material gain, infinite growth and thinking
we do not have enough.
Permaculture is so much more than a different
way of gardening. It is an entirely different 'set of living arrangements'.
The three ethical principles of Permaculture:
Care of the Earth.
Care of People.
Return of surplus to Earth and people (also called “Fair Share”)
Consider the far ranging implications of basing our decisions on
these principles, replacing the implied principles of EMPIRE, a
culture based on fear, worry, greed and hate. The underlying principles
of EMPIRE seem to be: consume, waste, anything goes to make $$$
for a few while polluting and destroying for many. EMPIRE is basically
a culture ripe with slavery, dependant on infinite growth and unlimited
resources, hell-bent on turning our paradise planet of love into
a toxic dump.
Moving Ahead - Getting Started
Read THE PLAN, Live Rent Free: A Safe Place to BE
Become familiar with the topics and positive approach.
THE PLAN is carefully written to stimulate imagination and possibility.
It is intended to educate people who are not familiar with the concepts
such as: Permaculture, Homesteading, Eco-villages and sustainability.
The amount of information is equivalent to a semester long college
course. It is like a syllabus, an outline of the subjects in a course
of study or teaching.
Cultivate our vision
Spend time in meditation or daydreaming about the possibilities
of a different 'set of living arrangements'. Beleive we can and
already are, making the changes necessary to have what we want.
A better way of life. Dream and beleive. Gma KoKo has written her
version of a possible future, called 'More
to Come'. Read it here
Dare to dream, many are.
Offer to teach a class or give a presentation
Many places are available to offer to teach and share these concepts
What is considered a civic organization?
A civic association is a type of organization whose official goal
is to improve neighborhoods through volunteer work by its members.
Look to the civic organizations that already exist in your community.
Woman's clubs, Rotary clubs and the like, other groups concerned
with environmental and sustainability issues.
Most libraries and schools offer a space to present a program.
